The five star rating is for the view. We climbed up from Montorosso. That is a pretty good climb, but lovely. Almost all of the hike is in shade.

Nice Sanctuary, a shrine place, the church is small and very pretty; she is on a height near the sea in Monterosso; a nice place for a walk.

We stopped here briefly while we were visiting Monterosso in the Cinque Terra region of Italy. The church is located in the town square nestled among shops and small restaurants. It is a well-maintained church with lovely stained glass windows.

Our family, including two teens, embarked on the hike to Soviore, as the first leg on our proposed non-standard path from Monterosso to Vernazza. The hike was challenging in elevation gain (600+m) and at one point, following the path. For the latter, the trail crosses...More
